Home Buyers Survey in Chelsfield

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Chelsfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Chelsfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Chelsfield property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The RICS Level 2 Survey includes a valuation as well as a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To fully consider the correct valuation your surveyor will factor in knowledge of Chelsfield and other things relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions such as there being no major problems.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any expensive legal issues e.g. no laws are broken by use of property. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Chelsfield area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Chelsfield environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we should look into if purchasing a property in Chelsfield inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and the bearing they have on the home. Property values is generally enhanced owing to the areas retaining original features. However many are falling into a state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors can be expected to note whether the location could be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping developments to the property will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Your Chelsfield surveyor should mention potential asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Other external areas of the property

On a RICS Level 2 Survey carried out in Chelsfield, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house's value. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Chelsfield home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The structured format for the RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any house buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. A stair rise which is too big or uneven is one example.
